AYURVEDA – It is a word or to an extent a form of treatment which is acting as the saviour of our lives since thousands of years. Basically, Ayurveda is knowledge of life. Many believed that it has its traditional roots in the Indian subcontinent.
The concepts of Ayurveda have been present from Indus Valley Civilization. Therapies of Ayurveda are been mentioned in some Upanishads (*believed to be Holy Scriptures*) also. In Sushruta Samhita, Sushruta wrote that Dhanvantari, is the Hindu god of Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is a treatment which primarily includes herbs, mineral compounds, and metal substances. So, in short, Ayurveda is a technique which metaphorically seems that Mother Nature is healing us.
We have seen that with the advent of allopathy and homeopathy, the demand of Ayurvedic therapy is lowering. But at the same time, we know that Ayurveda is the oldest medication therapy.
Despite knowing about this, we are not adopting it in the 21st century. However, in the recent times, an average shift has been seen once again, towards the Ayurvedic therapies.
The basic motive of Ayurveda is to promote long, healthy and balanced lives to the people. There are many benefits of Ayurveda. It helps in curing Alzheimer disease, Asthma, Dementia ( the problem in the sleeping pattern), depression, obesity, painful menstruation i.e. Dysmenorrhea, constipation, high or low blood pressure, diabetes and much more. It is a warehouse which contains the treatment of every problem.
Ayurveda believes that treatment of every person is individualistic in nature as every person’s immunity system is different but also at the same time promotes holistic development of that individual. Ayurveda focuses on 3 Doshas or dynamic forces in the body in order to start the healing process.
The first dosha is Vata energy which is related to breathing, motion, circulation, and mobility. The second dosha is Pitta energy which is related to digestion, absorption of nutrients, body temperature and energy expenditure. The third dosha is Kapha energy which controls the growth of the body and helps to keep the immune system strong.
With the modernization and advancement of medical science, the Ayurvedic therapies are also gaining importance in both domestic as well as foreign countries. According to a Charaka, “Life is the combination of body, senses, mind and reincarnating soul.
